You can download GDAL from http://www.gisinternals.com/sdk/
"GDAL and MapServer latest release versions" and then gdal-*-core.msi and GDAL*win*py2.*.msi package.

But GDAL is actually an optional dependency and mapproxy-util should not fail if it is missing. So you found a bug!

I just release 1.7.1 with a fix for that. Can you try it out?
